The Great Oil Swindle

Is leading us to destruction
Friday, December 15, 2017, 6:41 PM

When it comes to the story we're being told about America's rosy oil prospects, we're being swindled. And the swindle is not just limited to the US.

At its core, the swindle is this: The shale industry's oil production forecasts are vastly overstated.

The false conclusions the world is drawing as a result of the deception and outright lies we're being told is putting our future prosperity in major jeopardy. Policy makers and ordinary citizens alike have been misled, and everyone -- everyone -- is unprepared for the inevitable and massive coming oil price shock. » Read more

If You Don't Own Any Bitcoin, Read This

This week it hit $19,000. What's next?
Friday, December 8, 2017, 7:50 PM

Bitcoin's price has gone 'beyond exponential' this week.

Just yesterday, while I was working on this article, it shot up 22% -- from $14,000 to $17,000 (hitting an intraday high of $19,000). And that's after a mind-blowing upwards rocket ride over the past several months. I think it's safe to say that the vicious melt-up in price over such a short timeframe has surpassed the expectations of even the starriest-eyed Bitcoin fanboys.

The whole world, especially the 99.99% of us that own zero cryptocurrency, is asking: What happens next? And, What should I do?

Is this insane trajectory going to continue for a lot longer? Do I need to get in now to avoid missing this once-in-lifetime fortune-making opportunity?

Or is this a classic bubble blow-off top? Is this the deadliest time to enter, right before the price implodes?

You're Just Not Prepared For What’s Coming

Not even close
Friday, December 1, 2017, 11:57 PM

All bubbles burst -- painfully of course. That’s their very nature. Mathematically, it's impossible for half or more of a bubble's participants to close out their positions for a gain. But in reality, it's even worse. Being generous, maybe 10% manage to get out in time.

That means the remaining 90% don’t. For these bagholders, the losses will range from 'painful' to 'financially fatal'.

Which brings us to the conclusion that a similar proportion of people will be emotionally unprepared for the bursting of these bubbles.  Again, playing the odds, I'm talking about you» Read more

The Importance Of Knowing

Without insight, action is useless
Monday, November 27, 2017, 11:20 PM

At Peak Prosperity, we strive to help people advance in three key areas: KnowingDoing and Being.

Doing and Being are the resilience-building steps we recommend. Helping folks develop their own personal action plans in these areas is the main focus of the seminars we run.

But Knowing? That's the essential first part to master. Without sufficient understanding and insight to guide you, any action you take is merely groping in the dark. » Read more

The Great Retirement Con

Frankly put: retirement is now a myth for the majority
Friday, November 17, 2017, 7:25 PM

40 years ago, a grand experiment was embarked upon. One that promised US workers: using new 'defined contribution' retirement savings vehicles such as IRAs and 401k,, they'd be better off when they reached retirement age.

Which raises a simple but very important question: How have things worked out? » Read more

If The Saudi Arabia Situation Doesn't Worry You, You're Not Paying Attention

A key geopolitical axis is swiftly shifting
Friday, November 10, 2017, 6:57 PM

While turbulent during the best of times, gigantic waves of change are now sweeping across the Middle East. The magnitude is such that the impact on the global price of oil, as well as world markets, is likely to be enormous.

A dramatic geo-political realignment by Saudi Arabia is in full swing this month. It’s upending many decades of established strategic relationships among the world's superpowers and, in particular, is throwing the Middle East into turmoil. So much is currently in flux, especially in Saudi Arabia, that nearly anything can happen next. Which is precisely why this volatile situation should command our focused attention at this time. » Read more

Running Out Of Room

No energy = no goods and services = no economy
Wednesday, November 1, 2017, 7:02 PM

The idea of an 'industrial economy' is an extremely recent human invention. And we’ve staked quite a lot on its continuation.

But it faces a massive predicament: It’s running out of resources.

When talking about the “economy”, we're really referring to the flow of goods and services --- which are themselves entirely dependent on energy. No energy = no goods and services = no economy. It’s really that simple.

So to track where we are in this story, put on your ‘energy goggles’. If you do, you can discover quite a lot. » Read more
